PEACE IN AMERICA. 



America, almosl alone of the great nations, is at 
peace to-day, and for this we are accustomed to take 
credit to ourselves. We blame the war in Europe 
on the "war spirit" and on the forms of government. 

It is customary now to say that this war will mean 
the end of despi a ism, and that after it is over we will 
find republics instead of empires and monarchies 
in Europe, so that people shall never again be 
plunged blindly into a war that is not of their 
making. But we forget that throughout history 
there have been few wars of the people's making, 
and when we say that men fight and die because of 
the mistakes of diplomats and rulers we make an 
indictment of war, not of governments. Demo- 
cratic England was driven into this war as little witli 
her own consent as autocratic Russia. Whether 
a king makes war alone or with the consent of 
Parliament, the finak decision is far removed from 
the people. We were on the brink of war last April ; 
if we had toppled over it would have been because 
of the action of the President and Congress, not 
because the nation as a whole thought that war was 
right and just. That we were saved is due to the 
wisdom of the President, not to our own peace- 
lovinp rm£ure, or to our form of government. There 
was war spirit enough abroad in the land, but even 
if there had not been our republican government 
would not have saved us if there had been another 
man in the White House. Perhaps we are too quick 
in judging Europe. We are proud of our peace, 
but we should give thanks to our good fortune and to 
the wisdom of the man who held war and peace for 
America in his hands last spring. 



INTERCOLLEGIATE INTERESTS. 



Wellesley has had a (dee Club Concert with 
Princeton — unprecedented event! And yet, in 
spite of the boldness of the plan it seems to have 
worked to the enat satisfaction of everybod} con- 
cerned, for, brides netting a considerable amount 
lor the building fund, the evenl was a social suc- 
cess. 

There are certain flowers which cannot thrive 
in isolation -even so it seems to us that no com- 
munity can live so much to and for and by itself, 
as our own college is prone to do. A certain amount 
of intercourse with other people, especially with 
other educational institutions, is necessary lor a 
healthy, vigorous existence. Let us see whal 
opportunities we have lor such association. The 
XEWs makes i,ne humble offering. In the library 
reading-room 1', when newspapers and magazines 
are kept, there is located, also, ,,ur exchange de- 
partment. There \ou can find i wide varietj of 
college publications, from tin Smith Monthlj to the 
Harvard Lampoon, This is our literary bond

I eague and our Club for the Study of Socialism is, 
through courtesy, allowed a certain share in the 
lite of the Intercollegiate Socialist Association. 

Thus far we partake of the common activities for 
the benefit of society. We have, at last, begun 
again to have intercollegiate debates. Here, alone, 
does .in element of rivalry, — thai element dear to 
all our hearts, — enter into our relations. Here 
we may spend our pugnacious energy in an in- 
tellectual manner. Since athletic activity is eon- 
fined to interclass contests, let us make the most 
of the other methods of establishing friendly re- 
lations with other colleges. 

We rejoiced exceedingly over our firsl debate— 
we are rejoicing exceedingly over our first joint 
concert. Have we, now, all that we think is de- 
sirable along the lines of outside interest and in- 
fluence, or shall we try to get more occasions for 
rejoicing? 



LONDON IN WAR TIME. 



(Extract from a letter written by Miss Myfanwy 
Campbell, a Senior in Whitelands College, London.) 

"I thought you would like to know what London 
is like during war time. The streets and parks are 
full of soldiers. You can't go out-of-doors without 
meeting long lines of recruits marching by the side 
of the road. There are some large barracks next 
to us, where thousands of recruits are drilled every 
day; one day some of them came into college, and 
eommandeered some of our blackboards. Soldiers 
are camping out in Hyde Park and on the commons 
and heaths around the city. One regiment of 
recruits will march from the city on Saturda} , and 
spend the day on one of the commons manoeuvring, 
practising shooting, and running for miles through 
the long grass, scouting 'the enemy' in another part 
of the common. One Saturday afternoon, we went 
out to Wimbledon Common to watch them. It is 
very interesting to see the regiment cooks making 
the soldiers' dinner of smashed-up vegetables. All 
the green grass of the parks has been worn brown by 
the tramp of so many feet, and by tents and ambu 
lance wagons. 

"If we want to catch a 'bus in London now, we 
often have to wait for about ten minutes, while 
before the war there was one continuous service. 
The 'buses have been sent to the front to carry 
ammunition and food for the Allies, so we in London 
have to wait for a 'bus or walk, or go by t he under- 
ground railway, which is crowded with pa iseng 
and makes good advertisements by saying it is 
bomb-proi >i . 

"London al nighl is the strahgi I cen There 
have io be a- few lights as possible, so all glaring 
lights in front of theaters, picture place , and railway 
station are turned out , and only aboul every third 
street lamp is lit. Then the glass is painted black 
SO that light is thrown only on the ground. The 



'buses and motor cars are not allowed to have 
glaring headlights, only one small red light. Going 
■ iver bridges across the Thames, all lights on vehicles 
have to be put out, in ease they should reflect in the 
river, and traffic crosses the bridges very slowly 
in pitch darkness. The shops have to pull down 
their sunblinds at night, and have as little light as 
possible in the windows. In college, we have brown 
paper shades over all our lights, and we have to 
tack up thick curtains in front of the windows, and 
draw down the sunblinds. The water of the beauti- 
ful lakes in the parks around Buckingham Palace 
has all been drained away, and only the concrete 
bottom with pipes running across can be seen now. 
This is because the water is light at night and re- 
flei is light in it, and so it might be a guide for 
German Zeppelins to reach Buckingham Palace 
and drop a bomb on the king. While London is 
thus darkened at night, a German air-ship would 
have difficulty in flying over the city and distinguish- 
ing whereabouts it is. Also, a British air-ship flies 
over the dark city all night long, guarding and 
watching, and learning the way in the air over 
London. Often we can see this air-ship quite 
plainly, because there are powerful search-lights 
placed over the gates of Hyde Park and at Charing 
Cross Station and they light up the whole sky and 
the roofs of the houses. 

"There are also many wounded soldiers in London, 
and some colleges have been turned into hospitals. 
The grandstand on the famous Derby race-course is 
now a hospital for wounded, and as we 'bus through 
London, we often see a large notice in red which 
stretches across the street and says 'Quiet for the 
Wounded,' and all traffic goes by as quietly as 
possible."

COLLEGE HALL HILL. 



As the News goes to press, there is nothing left of 
College Hall except the wing where the dining- 
room was, and we expect that to have vanished 
every time we look at the hill. The rapidity with 
which the great walls have been pulled down has 
been amazing. The hill now looks somewhat as it 
must have in the days before the College 
was built. But the foundations of the new build- 
ing are in progress, and it will not be long before 
1 In building sketched on the front page of this issue 
will be a reality. 



OPPORTUNITIES. 



Play by Miss Hawkridge. 

The pla\ "Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater," by 
Miss Winifred Hawkridge, a former member of 
Wellesley College, will be given in Cambridge on the 
evenings of December 8 and 10 and in Boston on the

well written play and highly recommended by 
Professor Bates of Harvard and other critics. 
A percentage of profits from lickets sold to Welles- 
ley people, will be returned to the Restoration 
fund. Further information may be obtained at 
the "elevator table" where tickets will be on sale.

WELLESLEY PRINCETON GLEE CLUB 
CONCERT. 



The unexpected has come to pass. Saturday night, 
Nov. 28, in the ball room of the Waldorf-Astoria, the 
Glee Club gave a joint concert followed by dancing, 
with the Princeton University Musical Club, in 
benefit for the Restoratii n Fund. A saying which 
may be taken with a grain 1 !' salt passed the lips ( f 
many a girl who boarded the 10 o'clock train to 
New York on Friday morning, "I'm so glad College 
Hall burned!" During the next two days, this 
confirmation was strengthened. The members of 
the New York College acted as hostesses an 1 every 
one was royally entertained. Saturday morning 
the Wellesley Club met the Princeton men in re- 
hearsal and practiced the two songs which they 
sang together, "Neath the Oaks," and "The Orange 
and the Black," one of Princeton's most famous 
songs. The concert proved a great success, both 
in a financial and a social way. The profit netted 
over two thousand dollars and many people realized 
in a more definite way for what Wellesley College 
stands. Great thanks are due to Mr. Macdougall, 
who gave so much of his tunc and valuable training, 
to Molly Chambers, who led us so splendidly and to 
Georgia Titcomb, who managed the trip success- 
fully. The whole college offers the Princeton Glee 
Club the deepest appieciation for their great aid. 
The efficient committee who carried out the whole 
idea are Mrs. Robert Ludington, Chairman, Miss 
Betsey Baird, Miss Gladys Platten, Mrs. Dean 
P. Lockwood, Mrs. J. Ramsay Ruse, Miss Selma 
Somerville and Mrs. H. K. Twitchell.

THE JUNIOR-SENIOR DEBATE. 



In spite of that "night after vacation feeling," 
Billings Hall was fairly well filled on November 27, 
when the Junior and Senior debating teams came 
up against each other. 

Helen Lange, Presidenl of the Debating Club, 
introduced the question: Resolved — That Congress 
should pass a law providing for the addition of at 
least two battle-ships annually to the United States 
Navy. Miss Lange then read the line-up of the 
teams:

1916 Affirmative 

Amy Rothchild 
Florence Parmley 
Sara Snell 
Hazel Pearson 
Kate Van Iviton 
Dorothy Phillips 

Miss Phillips, leading off for the affirmative, 
gave a brief but sufficient "history and origin of 
the question," and then set forth and authenticated 
the first affirmative argument — that, in the first 
place, the United States ought to have a definite 
policy in regard to increasing its navy, indefinitc- 
ness in past times having been detrimental to the 
welfare of the American people; in the second plai e, 
a stronger navy is needed to defend our merchant- 
marine and our coast line. The United States 
standing army is practically a zero factor. 

Miss Snell, second speaker for the affirmative, 
showed that our territorial possessions and our 
international policies both call for naval support. 
Miss Snell set forth, very convincingly, the necessity 
of being prepared for any war emergency, in the 
face of such a situation as now exists in Europe. 

Miss Johnson, speaking for the negative, brought 
out the point that the expense of such an addition 
to our navy would be out of proportion to the 
necessity for it when the United States seems likely 
to remain a peaceful power. Miss Rothchild, last 
speaker for 19 16, refuted this argument and adduced 
more in support of the increase of the navy by battle- 
ships. 

Miss Boyer, second debater for 1915, showed that 
our national strength is directly based on a policy 
of peace, and that the United States, at the end of 
the present war, will be expected to lead in the 
peace-movement of federated nations. 

Miss Moffat, third speaker for the negative, wenl 
into a discussion of dreadnaught architecture. 



WE WANT YOUR PATRONAGE 



Battle-ships, she assured us, change fashions rapid- 
ly. Moreover, they are being fast superseded by 
submarines. 

After a five-minute recess, the rebuttal was given. 
1916 scored 1915 for lack of practical facing of the 
facts, for theorizing concerning the outcome of the 
European War. The teams were well-matched in 
regard to grasp of subject and quickness in refuta- 
tion. The delivery of 1916's team, while losing 
somewhat in formality and legality, surpassed 1915 
in the matter of convincing freedom. 

The debate was won by 191 5. The judges were 
Mr. Cottrell, of the History Department, and Dr. 
Sprague and Mr. Hall of Harvard.

1916. 



APPOINTMENT BUREAU. 



The following has been received from the Guaran- 
ty Trust Company, 140 Broadway, New York 
City; 

"I have received your letter of November 19 
asking me to renew my statement about the \\< rk 
that is open to college students who wish to take 
an apprenticeship here. 

"Any girl who comes here would have to give 
eight months of her time in exchange for instruc- 
tion. This, of course, seems rather hard to a girl 
who has just spent four years in college, but you 
can understand chat, even with her good education, 
she has very little special knowledge that would 
make her valuable to a business house. It is her 
trained mind, and her ability to concentrate and 
to help herself that gives a college girl her value in 
this sort of work. Men are beginning to realize 
this and to put more and more important matters 
in the hands of women. 

"A girl who came in here to learn filing would 
begin with the simple correspondence, which would 
give her an idea of trading, financial terms, the 
personnel of the business world, etc. She would 
then go on to work with corporate documents, a 
thorough knowledge of which is most important. 
After that she would take up work with the mailing 
list, -ah sunn's records, reference work with finan- 
cial publications, etc. This training would prepare 
her to become a file clerk and would give her an 
insight into the requirements, should she care later 
to go more deeply into the subject and become a 
statistician or correspondence saleswoman. 

"The opportunities offered to a girl in business 
life vary greatly according to the standing of the 
firm and the mentality and personality of the 
girl. Conditions in New York City are somewhat 
more advanced than the\ are in Boston, Chicago 
01 elsewhere. The salaries usually range from 
$60 a month (for a beginner) to from $1,500 to 
$2,200 a year for more advanced work. 

"II there is any other information that I can 
give you, I hope that you will not hesitate to call 
me foi it." 

\n\ former student of the College interested in 
this opening is advised to address Mis-, S. Eugenia 
Wallace, care oi the Guarantj Trusl Company, as

PARLIAMENT OF FOOLS. 



STRANGE PEOPLE I HAVE KNOWN. 



Of people there are many kinds; 

You've heard, perhaps, of pills and grinds, 

Of jiggers, sharks, and boobs and ginks, 

And there are others, too, methinks, 

The which are also ever nigh, 

Whom 't might be well to classify. 

Perhaps you know the Gushaboo? 
She's always, always meeting you, 
And saying, "Oh my dear, it's sweet, 
I love those shoes upon your feet!" 
And so she prattles all the day. 
(I fear she has nought else to say.) 

Or do you know the Bunkajelt? 
She is quite often to be felt; 
She wears her elbows turning out, 
And in the halls she runs about, 
And prods fair ladies in the side, 
Because the halls are not so wide 
As she is, with her wings unfurled. 
(Oh, chase the Bunka from the world!) 

Perhaps you've met the Wogawong 

Who dreameth dreams the whole day long, 

Who gazeth upward at the sky 

To watch the little clouds go by, 

And walketh bang, straight into you, 

Because she cannot see you, too? 

(Poor Wogawong, how sad should she 

Fall off the chicken walk, — ah me!) 

And then there is the Glubalink; 

She is quite numerous, I think, 

She has six quizzes in a day, 

And papers, — oh, a huge array. 

She tells you all about her woe, 

As to the village she doth go, 

And, worse, she knows e'er she's begun, 

That she'll have flunked them when they're done! 

(She should work more, and cease to prate, 

About what's handed her by fate.) 

There also is the Swashajish, 
Or Boobanick, just as you wish. 
She trails along upon the green, 
A-thinking of what might have been; 
She haunts each dear, familiar spot 
Where that has been which now is not. 
(She should to Stu. G. meeting pass, 
And learn to walk from off the grass.) 

Of course, there is the Wugamoo, 
Who always knows just what to do, 
And how to do it, and would fain 
To you, who do not know, explain. 
She is so circumspect, and wise. 
(If ever in my power it lies, 
I'll find another Wugamoo, 
And tie them to one tree, the two, 
To tell each other what to do.) 



And last of those thai I will name, 

There is the Glinglingo, the same 

Who calls, in accents loud and shrill, 

When all the house is dark and still, 

When good people are in their beds 

A-resting their poor, weary heads, 

Who makes much noise, and docs not care, 

Until the proctors tear their hair. 

(She is n'>i very thoughtful, no. 

This strange, night-warbling Glinglingo.) 

Now, do you think they're funny, too? 
But maybe one of them is you. 



AND STILL 



Wise Junior: Oh, yes, she's in line for Phi Beta 
Kappa ! 

Interested Freshman: Why, do they line them up 
for that, too?

SILENT NIGHT, OR TO MY MATTRESS. 



I sleep. Pass on, oh watchman hoar, 
Tread no more lightly than of yore; 
Rattle, oh curtain, loud and clear, 
I shall not hear, I shall not hear; 
Batter, my pictures, 'gainst the wall, 
You will not bother me at all; 
But mattress, though thou fittest mil, 
Stick to my cot, stick to my cot. 

Blow, blow, ye winds, across my feet, 
You will not break my slumbers sweet; 
Rumble, ye trains, upon the track, 
You cannot woo my spirit back; 
Pound, radiator, 'til you ache, 
For you will not ray slumbers break; 
But mattress, 'neath my feet and head, 
Stay on my bed, stay on my bed. 

Screech, nightmared lady of next door, 
As you have often done before; 
Bang, doors that know not latch nor lock; 
Clang out the hours, dear neighbor's clock; 
Oh, be not silent for my sake, 
For I shall sleep, — until I wake, 
If thou, oh mattress of my heart, 
'Dost not depart, dost not depart. 



REFLECTIONS ON SWEEP DAY. 



Lugubrious wing-wang-wo 

Is a creature strange and wild, 

He sits upon my bed to-day 
With aspect fierce and wild: 

His neck is short and very broad. 

His back all bumpy and brown, 
Oh, sad indeed it is for me 

When the wing-wang-wo comes clown. 

Of pillows is his insides made, 

A shirt-waist box his tummy, 
lie's swallowed all my ornaments, 

And now he feels quite rummy.

FORD HALL LECTURES. 



A series of lectures of educational and sociological 
interest is being given this year under the auspices 
of the Boston School Voters' League. On December 
5, President Mary E. Wooley of Mt. Holyoke 
College will speak on the "Present-Day Mission 
of College-Bred Women." Norman Hapgood, 
Editor of Harper's Weekly, is the lecturer for De-

Symptom." These lectures are gvien Saturday 
mornings at 10.45 in Ford Hall, corner Bowdoin

Board. 



PRESIDENT SLOCUM ON "MASTERING 
THE IMPOSSIBLE." 



President William F. Slocum of Colorado College 
preached, at the Sunday morning chapel service, 
November 29, on " Mastering the Impossible." His 
text was drawn from the story of Christ command- 
ing the man with the withered arm to stretch forth 
his hand. 

After a dramatic paraphrase of the familiar story, 
Dr. Slocum applied its principles to life in general. 
The withering of a hand is due to disuse. There are 
in everyone of us powers which are withering from 
disuse. Sin lent al college have not begun to find 
themselves yet. The tragedy is when they never 
do. We are never t ruly alive unless we are mentally, 
morally, physically, spiritually awake. Contac.1 
with the living Christ alone can fully awake us. 
Peopli preach sometimes nowadays on "Are we 
tg faith?" Rather, we are only beginning to 
find faith. The world has had too narrow a con- 
ception of Christ. It h: rer appreciated Him, 

and the full, broad extent of Hii power in each om "I 
us to-day. If we cannot find this power and le1 
it < all out oui - ilities, oui Live will have no 
iency; bu1 if wi do awake to it, there will be 
nothing tht ei 1 1 ill impo ible.

DR. LOCKWOOD'S LECTURE. 

The first of the series of lectures arranged by 
the War Relief Committee was given by Dr. Lock- 
wood in Billings Hall, 3.20 P.M., November 29. 
Dr. Lockwood urged that we lay aside prejudice 
and think sympathetically. She told of reaching 
her conclusion (by a study of the "white papers") 
that every fighting nation is in the wrong. Each 
i> criticising the other for doing exactly what it 
itself is doing. If, said Dr. Lockwood, we take the 
hypotheses of nations that "might is right" — we 
must realize that every nation has a good excuse 
for fighting. Each feels that the nation must be- 
come the highest and best in the world, and to this 
end they subordinate che individual. It is this 
false pride that tries to instill in the people the 
desire for war. But, in reality, it is not the people 
who cause war, but diplomats who feel they must 
uphold this policy of raising the state to supremacy 
at the expense of the individual. 

Dr. Lockwood especially recommended the arti- 
cle by Lowes Dickinson in the "Atlantic Monthly" 
for December, 19 14. 

PLYMOUTH THEATER. 

"Grumpy," with Cyril Maude, the eminent 
English actor, still continues in its great popularity 
at the Plymouth Theater, Boston, where on next 
Monday the piece begins the fifth week of its en- 
gagement. Mr. Maude has been received with 
unmistakable favor by the New England public 
and it is safe to say that his stay in Boston will 
prove equally as sui cessful as was his great New 
York triumph. Mr. Maude appears as an aged and 
retired barrister, who finds himself dragged from 
his ease and thrown into the unravelling of a mys- 
terious diamond robbery. Mr. Maude's embodi- 
ment of the character is as line and convincing a 
piece of acting as has ever been shown in Boston. 
Moreover "Grumpy" is one of the most ingenuous 
and delightful detective plays produced on the 
American stage in years. In short, "Grumpy" is 
one of the rari' theatrical treats 1h.1t come only 
once in a great while and lo miss seeing it is to de- 

prive yourself of a genuinely delightful evening's 
entertainment. Mr. Maude is ably suppoi ted. His 
leading lady is Elsie Mackay, an Australian girl, 
who has won an enviable reputation in a short 
time. The rest of die company are excellent in 
their respective parts. "Grumpy" is the sort of 
I .l.i n that you enjoy recommending t< your friends, 
(tui of town play-goers should avail themselves 
of the efficient mail order system that prevails 
at the Plymouth. Be sure thai youi cheek or monej 
order is made payable to Fred E. Wright. It will 
receivi prompl and accurate attention. The regu- 
lar matinees are Thursday ami Saturday. \d\.

In Binghamton. X. V., Marie Stickley and 
Dorothy Bowden, 1912, raised $100 for the Fund. 
Through the Department of Education of the Mon- 
day Afternoon Club of that city, of which they are 
members, Mary Antin was engaged to lecture. 
Instead of the usual club auditorium the use of one 
of the largest churches in the city was donated for 
the lecture. The proceeds from all the tickets sold 
to non-members were given to the Wellesley Fund. 
As there were only two Wellesley women in the city 
the members of the A. C. A. helped with the ticket 
selling. The newspapers aided in widely advertis- 
ing the lecture and through the courtesy of the 



Superintendent of Schools, the High Schools were 
dismissed in time for teachers and students to at- 
tend. The church was will filled and Mary Antin's 
lecture was most interesting. Miss Bowden urges 
any club thinking of a lecture benefit, to try to 
engage Mrs. Graban, (Mary Antin), as she always 
draws a large crowd, aside from the Wellesley 
benefit attraction. In this instance the door re- 
ceipts were pure gain as the club paid for the lec- 
turer and club members entered on club tickets. 
Tickets w r ere fifty cents, and for students twenty- 
five cents. 

A book of verses, by three members of the class 
of 1903, Ethel Mendenhall Dixon, Mary Beltzhoover 
Jenkins and Helene Buhlert Magee, has been pub- 
lished for the benefit of the Restoration and En- 
dowment Fund. Copies may be obtained either 
at the College bookstore or by mail orders to Mrs. 
H. B. Magee, 4 Leighton road, Wellesley. The 
price is fifty cents; to members of 1903, thirty-five 
cents.

THE SERVICES IN MEMORY OF DR. 
ALEXANDER McKENZIE. 



A group of officers of the College attended the 
services in memory of Dr. Alexander McKenzie, 
trustee of the College since 1883, which were held 
in the Shepard Memorial Church in Cambridge, 
on Sunday, November 1 5. The sermon was preached 
by the present pastor of the church, Re\ . Raymond 
Calkins. At the afternoon service a letter was 
read from ex-President Eliot, and later came an 
address especially commemorative of Dr. Mc- 
Kenzie's service at Hamilton Institute, by Dr. 
Francis Peabody. Mr. J. M. W. Hall read an in- 
teresting paper on Dr. McKenzie's civic influence, 
and brought out the point that Dr. McKenzie and 
Father Scully, a Roman Catholic priest of Cam- 
bridge, were the two men who worked together for 
the no-license policy which has prevailed in Cam- 
bridge for many years. 

IN MEMORIAM. 



The Class of 1909 of Wellesley College learns with 
sorrow of the death of one of its members, Dorothj 
Williams, at her home in Germantown, Pa., on 
September 19, 1914, and we wish to express through 
the columns of the College News our deep regret 
for her death and our admiration for her character 
and her abilities. We would extend to her family 
our sincere sympathy in their loss. 

We, therefore, resolve t hat .1 copy of this memorial 
be sent to her family and that it be printed in the 
News and entered in I he records of the class. 

Signed, Dorothea Lawrance Mann. 

Mary Zabriskie Oleson, 
Katharine Stanley Hall. 

Margaret Whitney Mears of the Class of 1909 of 
Wellesley College died in Albany, N. Y., September 
20, 1914, and her classmates desire to record an 
expression of their sincere sorrow for her death and 
of their appreciation of her character and of her 
talents, making this public through the columns of 
the College News. We would extend to her 
husband and her family our deep sympathy in their 
bereavement. 

We, therefore, resolve that a copy of this memorial 
be sent to her husband and family and that it be 
printed in the News and entered in the records of 
the class.

WELLESLEY CLUBS. 



Born to Wellesley and her family, in Tokyo, 
Japan, on October 6, 1914, a new Wellesley Club! 
The seven present at the birthday party, celebrated 



with a regular Wellesley spread in tin- sitting-room 
of the hostess, Esther Balderston, with place cards 
of the Lake and rhododendrons painted by a little 
Japanese girl, and followed by a display ol ill 
available college pictures. All the humorous songs, 
from 'Hi's "Domestic Troubles" to ' 1 4's " Botany 
Tags," and '15's "Ghosts," were thoroughly and 
heartily enjoyed, and of course ascended to the 
climax in Alma Mater and the Tra-la-la, which are 
sung by Alumn,e with perhaps a little more tear} 
feelings in far-away Japan, even than in the houses 
"at home" that seem si, far from "our College 
Beaut iful." 

It was voted to ask for recognition in the great 
family of "organized" daughters, and to organize 
formally as soon as possible, holding the next 
meeting in Kobe, so that the western members may- 
more easily attend. 

The club will include the following: 
*Susan A. Searle, 1881, of Kobe College. 
Mrs. Vesta Greer Peak, 1886-87, of Saga. 
Mrs. Gertrude Willcox Weakley, 1888, of Osaka. 
Mrs. Tatzu Sugiyi Tokida, 1891-94, Girls' Higher 
School, Yokohama. 

*Mitsu Okada, 1902-05, Tokyo Women's Higher 
Normal. 

*Alice Gifford, 1907, Tokyo Friends' Girls' 
School. 

Ruth D. French, 1907, Mary Colby School,

Matzu Okonogi, 1907-09, Women's Higher 
Normal, Tokyo. 
Alice Fyack, 1897, of Sendai. 
Cornelia Judson, 1885-87, of Matsuyama. 
Marjorie Hiscox, 1906-07, Hiniyi. 
*Jitsuiye Koike, 1912, Woman's University, 
Tokyo. 

*Esther A. Balderston, 1 913, Tokyo Friends' 
< '.iris ' School. 

*Katherine F. Fanning, 1 9 1 3 , Glory Kinder- 
garten, Kobe (at present in Tokyo). 
*Those present at meeting.

On October 21 the first meeting of the year of the 
Buffalo Wellesley Club was held. The meeting was 
well attended and plans for raising money for the 
Restoration Fund were discussed. A pledge paper 
was passed around and a good-sized sum for this 
small club was raised. 

On November 5, another meeting of the club was 
held at which it was decided to sell tickets for a 
theater performance at one ot the local theaters 
and contribute the money raised to the Restoration 
Fund. This meeting took the form of a package 
party- and another small sum for the same fund 
was raised in this way.

The Worcester Wellesley Club held a rummage

THE VILLAGE OF WESTPORT POINT. 



By Katharine S. Hall ami Mar\ II. Sowle. 
A very interesting little book is this account of 
an old whaling port now degenerated to a summer 
colony. The story has been gathered from the lips 
of the oldest inhabitant-, from town records, from 
ships' logs, etc., and the recital gives a vivid picture 
of the self-contained, self-supporting existence of a 
New England village one hundred years ago. Here 
were built the ship- that were to search the Arctic 
and Antarctic seas for "hump-backs." The whal- 
ing tackle was wrought at the blacksmith's forge, 

three cooper shops provided the- barrels ill which 

to -tore- the illuminating oil, canvas lor the rigging 

was made up in Nooning'- -ail loll, and sailoi 
outfits were manufactured in a local tailor -hop. 
Mo-t important of all, the sturdy men who mad 
these wild, uncharted voyages were bred in this 
1. God-fearing village, hunted ovei these -and 
dunes, paddled about the creek- and harbors ol this 
picturesque coast. (harming photographs beat- 
witness to the winsome beauty ol dune and shore. 
Would that every romantic old town in New I ng 
land might find such chronii li I

forth the trials which come to Peter Breck, through
